Synopsis

A millennial tale, Queen and Slim meet on a dating app but are unaware of the awful turn their night will take. Harassed and threatened by a police officer for a minor traffic violation, they are forced to shoot him in self-defense and, aware of the systematic anti-black racism in America, their only choice is to run away. When a video of the accident goes viral, sparking large media interest and support from activists fighting against police brutality, Queen and Slim run from Ohio to an escape route for Cuba. Meeting eccentric characters along the way while hiding from the law, the two form a close bond. This beautifully shot drama explores racial and class issues in modern America as well as celebrating African-American culture.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
